Blue Devil wrestlers start strong

By
December 6, 2010 |

\n

After a few weeks of preseason practice, head coach Ty Brown could tell his 2010 Davis High wrestling team was well-stocked with talent. And when the Blue Devils finally opened their season on Saturday, they proved their coach right.

\n

Led by senior Philip Toy\’s 112-pound championship, DHS saw three wrestlers earn medals at the Ceres Invitational. In all, five Devil athletes made the trip, with senior Blair Kittle taking third place at 189 lbs and sophomore Andy Schmidl finishing sixth at 135. Navid Fani and Scott Derby also competed for Davis.

\n

Toy, who is coming off of an appearance at last year\’s Sac-Joaquin Masters meet, got his title by posting four consecutive victories and never trailing in any of the matches.

\n

The veteran pinned his first two opponents, then defeated Zach Conley of Livermore to earn his spot in the championship bout. Toy then clinched the title by beating Daniel Guzman of Western Ranch, 4-1.

\n

Brown described his 112-pound standout as an athlete who takes care of business on the mat and wrestles smart by taking points when his opponent offers them.

\n

Just after wrapping up his season with the Blue Devil football team, Kittle went 3-1 on Saturday to take third place at 189.

\n

After a first-round bye, the senior defeated Richard Sotelo of Hughson then lost to Jesse Stoy of Sunnyside. Kittle overpowered his final two opponents, pinning them both.

\n

Schmidl started strong, winning his first two bouts to set up a semifinal match with Aarom Dizon from Escalon. Up 6-1 in the second round, it appeared as if Schmidl was going to the championship, but one slip doomed his quest and his opponent turned him to his back. The Devil

\n

135-pounder finished sixth.
